CBS Deals Another Blow to Struggling Freshman Show

After shutting down production on a rookie show and moving it to a black hole in the programming schedule, CBS has dealt the comedy another blow, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Stopping short of announcing its cancellation, the network took "How to Be a Gentleman" off the air after just one week in its Saturday night time slot, the story reports.

The Kevin Dillon/David Hornsby show aired Saturday, Oct. 15, following a repeat of "Two and a Half Men," but drew just 2.4 million total viewers. By comparison, the repeat of "Two and a Half Men" drew 3.6 million viewers.

As reported previously, CBS shut down production on “Gentleman” and moved it to the “TV wasteland” of Saturday night earlier this month, after the show performed poorly on Thursday nights.
